What started as an electrodes and allied products operation in India, quickly grew into a comparable set-up servicing the UAE when Group Chairman, Mr. Mahendra Patel, moved to the UAE in the late 60s. He saw the vision of the UAE’s great leaders and five decades ago, took a chance and set up shop here in Dubai.
As the county grew, the company diversified into many different industries to service the needs of the increasingly growing population. As the construction sector grew, to support the need for infrastructure development, Geap Group, in addition to trading steel, set up a state-of-the-art cut-and-bend facility to provide efficiencies to the construction sector. Later, the group began manufacturing paints in Oman to provide road-marking services in the UAE. The group eventually diversified into shipchandling, food distribution, logistics, and more.
Geap Group is now a 3rd generation family-run enterprise.
